Thanks to the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund who let us know about a great auction the are holding for their charity this holiday season where the winner will get a visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to the description of the auction "The winning parent and lucky child will visit the set during the filming of the next Harry Potter movie in London in the first part of next year. They will be able to watch the filming, learn the secrets, and meet the stars."
Bidding is now open at this link, and runs until December 18th.  Proceeds from auction will benefit "The Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund's 21st Anniversary Poundcatcher campaign which aims to raise at least a pound from every rider to ensure it can continue to support all injured riders in genuine need."

Please note: Transportation to the UK is not provided (however bidding is welcome from around the world.) The DH set visit will take place at some point between January and April 2010 and  "the date is to be arranged by consent with the Studio, with 14 day's notice."  Good Luck!

Thanks Emily!

It is wonderful that they are doing this to raise money for charity. However, I think they should also let those in need and struggling visit the set instead of those with the most money. To see them in the last stages of this franchise would delight and enrich the lives of many children.

I am very glad that the money is going to a charity. However, they would probably raise more money and have it be a little more fair if this was set up as a drawing. Like if you donated £10, you would be entered into the drawing. For example, as of now the bid is £1250, a little over $2000 (USD), but most people really can’t afford to spend that much. However, I am able to spend £10 (roughly $16-$17), especially if it is going to charity. Even if you only had a few thousand people donate just once, think of all the money that would have been made. For the sake of this charity, I really hope that they get some people that can afford to bid tens of thousands of pounds before the auction ends in a week. If not, they lost a big opportunity to make a ton of money for their charity.
